The Art of Journaling

I’m teaming up with Artist and Writer Julie Galante for our third edition of this popular workshop, which brings together the craft of bookbinding and journaling. Included in the price is an Art of Journalling materials/tool kit, access to ‘how to’ video tutorials and an optional live Zoom session to facilitate your journaling journey.

My video tutorials will take you through all the steps to make an A5 refillable journal with room for 4 booklets – a great addition to your collection that will last you a lifetime and can be refilled again and again. I’ll also cover how to make handy pockets and envelopes to hold your treasures/receipts, and introduce some finishing touches that will ensure your journal is both functional and fabulous.

The Art of Journalling kit comes with everything you need to make your journal, including the tools you need to make more booklets at home – so you need never buy another notebook again! Kits will be posted out first week in January and will include a special code to access the step by step tutorials, which you can watch and work through at any point.

The Art of Journaling live session, hosted by Cass and Julie, will take place on Zoom on Wednesday 20 January, with the option to take part in the morning 10am-12pm (GMT), or evening 6-8pm (GMT). The session will share:

  • Guidance on how to get going with your new journal – some writing exercises designed to tap into our creativity and promote wellbeing.

  • Ideas on how to approach a journalling practice and the benefits that regular writing can bring.

  • Methods such as free writing, gratitude journaling, mind mapping.

  • Some creative ideas for how to put your booklets together to assist your journaling.

By the end of the session, you’ll be inspired to get started with your own journalling practice. The live sessions are capped at 10 participants so that we can create an inviting, interactive, and informal group to support your journaling journey. You have the option to make your journal before or after the Zoom workshop – either way will work.

Self paced workshop option: after running four completely sold-out sessions of this workshop, we’ve decided to add a prerecorded video option for those who want to participate but can’t make the live sessions. You can choose this option in the drop-down menu. Kits will be posted out mid-November, and will include instructions on how to access the online tutorials.


This workshop costs £65-70 depending on kit options, there is an additional charge for international shipping. For more information and to book your place, visit Julie’s website here.
